Audi R8 e-tron: Official pictures released

Audi R8 e-tron

Audi has released official pictures of the Audi R8 e-tron which will hit production next year.

Audi has just released the first pictures of the new R8 E-Tron, an electric super coupè that will hit its production stage by the end of 2012. Quite similar to its petrol versions, the Audi R8 E-Tron will be able to reach a remarkable 200 Km/h and to go from 0-100 Km in 4.8 seconds thanks to four electric motors, one for each wheel, providing a total system output of 230kW (313hp) and maximum torque of 4,500Nm. In addition, an abundant use of light fibres has allowed this vehicle not to compromise its weight balance and to keep the overall mass under the 1500 Kg mark.
